The event featured stars from the Hindi and South Indian film industries, including Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Kareena Kapoor, Jim Sarbh, Sonam Kapoor, Bhumi Pednekar, Kamal Haasan, and Mani Ratnam, among others. The opening ceremony of Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival was held at the Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre, where two hours of impassioned speeches and awards were presented under the chairwomanship of Priyanka Chopra Jonas.

Chopra Jonas emphasized the significant role of women in the Indian film industry, acknowledging their contributions both in front of and behind the camera.
